Colorado car accident attorney R. Mack Babcock and associates develop one-stop guide to help drivers before, during and after a collision
Denver, Colo. – May 27, 2014 – Navigating the legal waters following a car accident can be difficult, even without the pain of injuries and challenges of recovery. Often times, an injured party will accept a lower settlement offer from an insurance company thinking that is all they are entitled to under the law. The Babcock Law Firm, a Denver-based car accident firm representing injured victims, recently released the Colorado Car Accident Guide to both inform drivers on what to do following a collision and assist injured parties prove fault and obtain compensation.
The free Colorado Car Accident Guide is divided into three main sections (Preface, Part I, Part II) and several chapters.
- The Preface provides critical information for all drivers, including a printable checklist to keep in the vehicle to document important accident information and a timeline guide for what drivers should attempt to do in the minutes and hours following a collision.
- Part I explores the different types of car accidents that can occur, along with common injuries requiring short or long-term treatment.
- Part II details the general legal process for proving fault and obtaining compensation, including information on how to deal with an insurance company.
“Knowing the right steps ahead of time, before an accident occurs, is vital to ensuring injured parties get the medical treatment they need and any compensation for lost wages, property and other expenses. This was the main reason motivating us to develop a comprehensive guide,” comments R. Mack Babcock, founder of the Babcock Law Firm.
The guide is not intended to replace legal counsel, but rather help injured victims in car accidents properly document damages and injuries, and understand the steps they need to take to secure a proper amount of compensation. Personal injury laws and the procedures for filing a claim are quite complex and require the assistance of an experienced attorney to help investigate, interview witnesses and negotiate with the defendant.
“Although an attorney is still vital in pursuing an accident claim, there are things drivers can do on their own. Besides documentation and timeliness, this includes taking steps to prevent an accident from occurring in the first place,” explains Babcock.
The guide can be viewed online or downloaded here. To discuss an individual case or learn more, contact car accident attorney R. Mack Babcock and associates at the Babcock Law Firm to schedule an appointment.
